I created some Illustrations for a course about working in the home office and possible influences on general health. Hope I can publish it to the end of the year.
Fav Artist this year: Rising Sun/The Ambientist - a producer who reminds me of Traumprinz or early Moby.If you want to play a Vinyl record of him you inevitably have to pierce a hole through the middle because a sticker with the words "Reality used to be a friend of mine" is stuck over it. Rising Sun summarized the metaphor as follows: "You have to destroy reality to perceive the music". The first listening to the record gets a completely different weight.
I think #Earthstar is finally gelling enough that I can describe it clearly:
"A protocol for user-friendly distributed apps"

I joined my local anarchist union a few months ago. After not knowing for a long time how to get involved, I have now found the possibility to design logos for some chapters. It's just a small thing but it brings me a little bit closer to the people and I have something I can support in a meaningful way.
Rest in Power David Graeber. I have never read a book by you and yet I have stumbled upon you and your thoughts at regular intervals since the Occupy protests. Last year, when I heard that you were giving a lecture at the Chaos Communcation Congress, I dropped everything and ran into the lecture hall. I was hoping that you would come back this year. You will be missed. #graeber
I discovered hyperlink.academy a few weeks ago and meanwhile they have published their first courses. Every single course sounds super interesting - but I decided to take the course "GUIs Through Art History" due to the lack of time and money. The course starts next week and I am a bit nervous and full of anticipation when I think about it.
Over the last few days an old school friend has been visiting me. He strongly recommended a contemporary novel to me, in whose analyses and observations he found himself painfully often. I read some reviews this morning and the opinions on it varied greatly - from "this book could start a youth movement" to "I'm giving the book away to the first person to comment on it". I accompanied him to the train station today and picked up the book directly in the next book department. #AllegroPastell
So in Love with the Cover of Crack Clouds new LP Pain Olympics.
Tiddlyblink + glitch is an easy way to get your tiddlywiki with bi-directional linking to the web. Hopefully this leads to many small digital gardens.
Yesterday I had a very nice encounter on the internet. I'm currently programming a prototype to show how to recognize Phishing mails in everyday work routine. After I was stuck for several hours and didn't manage to mirror the contents of my js array into my HTML code, I used the help function of glitch.com. After a few minutes I worked with a person from Sweden to get my code working. This is the internet as I wanted it to be back then and what has become so unrealistic in the last years.
For all those who are looking for some culture tonight: On the website of the Schaubühne Berlin you can watch Didier Eribon's play "Return to Reims" until 24:00. I read the book last year and was very impressed by his analysis of the working class.
Merveilles is a community project aimed at the establishment of new ways of speaking, seeing and organizing information — A culture that seeks augmentation through the arts of engineering and design. A warm welcome to any like-minded people who feel these ideals resonate with them.
